Hughes Magnet

   On Friday, May 8th, LWB Company and Trainees had the opportunity to perform "Follow the North Star" twice at Hughes Magnet Public School. The first performance took place on a stage near the cafeteria, and the second was for a gym class for one of the grades. We were blessed to discover that one of the staff members had been preparing the children for the ballet by giving them all sorts of background information about Harriet Tubman. It was sweet to hear laughter from the kids during certain points in the ballet and to hear them whispering about how they wanted to "defend" the slaves. They clapped along to the songs and were such a fun audience. All in all, it was a wonderful experience! ~Hannah Wallace

Calvary Chapel

The company and trainees had the privilege of performing at Calvary Chapel for the women's luncheon. We performed Ana's Battle and Miss Ashley gave a very encouraging message after the performance about leaving a legacy and how we can be courageous women through God. The church was very welcoming and everyone was so sweet. I hope to see all of those wonderful ladies again.

Central Park Rehab

Thursday, April 30th, Light of the World Trainees and Youth Ballet performed at the Central Park Rehab center. We performed several pieces choreographed by members of the Trainee Program and Youth Ballet, as well as some pieces from our repertoire. Hannah Robinson and Hannah Wallace each shared a testimony of how Christ has changed their lives. It was such a blessing to meet the people and Staff of Central Park Rehab and pray with them after the performance. It was wonderful to see the Lord fill the place with His joy! To God be the Glory! ~Anna

This Tuesday, the trainees and youth ballet were so privileged to dance and meet with the
wonderful people at PACE CNY adult care facility. Both trainees and youth ballet performed
multiple pieces from their repertoire, a few of the pieces were choreographed by the dancers
themselves. It was touching to meet with those who watched afterwards and be able to hear
their stories and share some times of laughter and prayer. So wonderful to see God move and
bring some joy to such beautiful people!

Ed Smith School

On Friday, LWB company and trainees performed Follow the North Star at Ed Smith School. We danced for third through fifth grades in the auditorium, and then for second grade during their gym class. Some of the children's favorite parts were Wade in the Water, with blue billow fabric, and the rap section in Bring Us Home. We also got to lead a third grade gym class of about 25 students, who were incredibly enthusiastic and fun to teach. The trainees helped demonstrate steps, and also had a brief opportunity to chat with the students. We were all blessed to be a part of the children's day and pray that they were impacted by the message of the ballet!
